Wall pads or mats?

Hey guys,

I'm looking for some used wall pads or mats for a gym. I figured there has gotta be someone dumping wall pads at some point. Obviously I'm willing to pay, but I don't want to spend thousands of dollars that dollamur would expect for wall pads.

I have a 10x10, looking for a 12x12, may just get some bjj mats so it isn't a big deal about the mats. The wall pads would be much nicer since then we could really bang around. I need about 40-50 feet of walling to be covered. That would be about 20-25 of these, but the price of $1500 just doesn't seem worth it:

Anybody got ideas?

Get a bunch of mattresses from the dump and tape them to the walls and floors. You can get tape for free at a school or doctorś office.

Also just question the kidś toughness when they complain.

Thanks GrossNoises! I followed your advice, now my gym looks like a crazy creeper dungeon so I can finally post on craigslist and backpages for "wrestling lessons" with an "All-American Stud".
